    "... Well, wasn't this just de-fucking-lightful?" Nova glanced over his shoulder. "We should go now. That way when Alexander shows up, the best he can do is throw a hissy fit." This was the last thing any of them needed on the heels of the whole Terminal Two raid. But it happened. "That...

    Nova shook the air with his foreleg. "Nice to finally meet a version of you." He lowered his leg and glanced over the horizon. "We should-- I think we have to fall back." Crest drooping, Nova headed over to Mhynt, mindful of his passenger. She'd taken that godawful lightning blast. "I shouldn't...

    They had a bit of time. Maybe... there was a way to get info without going accusatory. "Names also go a long way toward making friends, y'know," Nova said, clicking his tongue. "And, well, mewtwo's a species as far as I'm aware. Cuz there's one back home. I get if you'd rather not the townsfolk...

    "Yeah. They're the ones who started the whole process breaking my mask." Nova shifted his weight and glanced at his satchel. "That ball I sleep in often... I got it from them. They're the offworlders who run the bulletin board."

    What the fuck? What the actual flying fuck?! Nova's crest fanned out. Of all the ridiculous possible— gah! The hell was he supposed to do in a situation like this? Make his claims on the spot? That solved nothing and could make everything worse! Yet the faded shadow and radiance were shouting...

    Nova had fallen down on his side when Owen and the swarm slipped through him. The fiery radiance and acrid shadows swirled around inside him. "D... damn it..." It wasn't enough. It was never enough. Why was it never enough? ... No, he couldn't think like that. Not everything's a guaranteed...

    Nova saw the lightning fry Mhynt. His chest tightened. He pinged the order to the two damaged fulls. Both of them wordlessly nodded their understanding, faces expressionless. Nova's chest tightened as they leaped toward the rampaging dragonite... and blew themselves apart in blinding white and...

    This time, there was no protective mist to spare Nova. First came a seizing of his limbs, then a scorching of his fur. Not as painful as the toxic in the lab, but enough to quiet some of the strange energy that was churning inside him before. He wouldn't be able to get close to Ignatius or Owen...

    Nova's sahdowy shields withstood the swarm of shadows even as they were totally surrounded. Another barrier deflected Ignatius' stray blast. He winced when Drapion went for Grace but got a small degree of smug satisfaction when Drapion's attempt at poisoning him the same way Naps did failed. The...

    Nova didn't exactly like these odds. But when hadn't they been the proverbial underdogs in these fights? Ganging up on Seth, probably. He saw where Mhynt teleported and gave her a concerned look. He didn't have the psychic disk in, so telepathy was off the table. Then Nova cautiously...

    It took Nova a bit of time to identify exactly which direction out of Frontier Town headed toward the Quarry. And then Nova had to hastily gather up necessary supplies in order to go help. Fortunately, there wasn't a need to try and rally people, since Mhynt had covered that with Betelepathy...

    Nova chuckled back at her. "Guess the kid's got his moments." He gestured along the road. "C'mon. Shouldn't be too much more left to deal with here." Despite the exhausting day, Nova managed to find a bit more spring in his step to finish out the job and had back into town with Mhynt. <><><>

    "Happens to the best of us." Nova stood up and offered a foreleg to help her up. "We could go grab a drink after we're done here, if you want."

    Nova nodded, slowly uncurling to give Mhynt some space. "Yeah. We're a lot different from whatever team you have back home." That whole "human connection" thing was part of it, but Nova didn't really want to dwell on that. "It may not be perfect, but maybe a little chaos is a good thing now and...

    Nova nudged her forehead gently. "And what about numbers? Do you have a team like this back home?"

    The way Mhynt talked... it sounded familiar. Trapped. No escape. That was the life they both lived back home. Their fate. But hers had... followed her here. What was Nova supposed to say to that? ... Hang on. Hadn't he brought up a similar fear to Mhynt before. What had she said at the time...

    "It could help," Nova said, cheek bolts turning clockwise, then counterclockwise. "I think there's still something else though. Just talking about going there is having an effect."

    "It's a figure of speech." Nova smiled shakily. "Built and controlled by humans, remember?" He shook his head. "You're not going this alone, right? Who can come with that you trust to keep you grounded." Nova shifted weight onto his right foreleg. The claws dug into the dirt. "Help you to...

    It was fear then. That sort of raw, primal fear someone might have when they were staring down death incarnate. Which was a far cry from the composure she usually projected. Nova scooched over so he was by Mhynt's side. He offered his left shoulder. "It's okay. I get it. I... doubt it'd have...
